Biofilm management using monofilament fibre debridement technology: outcomes and clinician and patient satisfaction.

08:00 EDT 2nd September 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Biofilm management using monofilament fibre debridement technology: outcomes and clinician and patient satisfaction."

Best practice in wound bed preparation and biofilm-based wound management includes debridement to create a clean wound bed and to assist in minimising the redevelopment of biofilm. Biofilm that is not removed inhibits healing and redevelops if not prevented from doing so with topical antimicrobial agents. Monofilament fibre debriding technology (MFDT) is used for effective and rapid mechanical debridement of loose material, slough and biofilm. The objective of this evaluation was to determine the clinical effect and consequential levels of health professional and patient satisfaction with the results of a biofilm pathway that included MFDT to achieve debridement.
